Aldczar D. Aurelio, PAGASA Weather Specialist, reports that there is no LPA currently inside the PAR.
“Kasalukuyan, wala po tayong na-momonitor o binabantayang Low Pressure-Area (LPA) o bagyo sa loob ng ating Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR),” he said.
(At the moment, we’re not monitoring any Low Pressure-Area (LPA) or typhoon inside our Philippine Area of Responsibility.)
For today’s weather forecast, cloudy skies, isolated rain showers, and thunderstorms may be expected in Bataan, Zambales, Occidental Mindoro, and Palawan due to the Southwest Monsoon.
Meanwhile, fair weather conditions may be expected for the rest of Luzon, with chances of isolated rain in the afternoon or evening.
Western Visayas will also have cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms. However, the rest of Visayas and Mindanao will have fair weather conditions.
